Remembering how things were, part II

| September 1, 2007

This great posting over at American Digest (one of the best-written blogs on the web) is worth taking the time to read:

1. Scenario: Jack goes quail hunting before school, pulls into school parking lot with shotgun in gun rack.

1957 – Vice principal comes over to look at Jack’s shotgun. He goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

2007 – School goes into lock down, and FBI is called. Jack is hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Read it all.

And while you’re at it, be sure to check out The Borderline Sociopathic Book for Boys (hat tip to, ta da, American Digest):

1. Ride a bicycle without a helmet. You heard me. And no spandex spangled with lavender and chrome yellow blotches and French words. You’ll wear canvas shoes, too. You will not have anything with you that people with helmets refer to as “hydration.” Eventually, you can get a blast of rubber-tasting hot water from a garden hose.

2. Tell your 5th grade teacher, when she starts in with the Vegan lecture again during a spelling lesson, that you’re going to kill and eat your supper as soon as you can get your hands on some weapons. Then inform her that if she gives you anything less than a ‘B” on any report card because you told her that, your father will have a phalanx of lawyers turn her life into a deposition purgatory. Then don’t pass in any homework for the remainder of the term. Let’s see who has the stones.

Again, read the whole thing. ..bruce..
